my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
According to D. Scott Chatfield's article in the RMJ list below, there were 5 builders of 86ft box cars;
Bob Allessi has informed me that Whitehead and Kales built #615200, the only one they ever built; and it was one of the first 3 hycubes built for any railroad.
SP and SSW owned cars from five: Whitehead & Kales, Paccar, Pullman, Thrall and Greenville.
See the SP Freight Car Spec. Sheet No.17 for earlier numbers and details.
From the Spec. Sheet, magazine articles and Lee Gautreaux's website; I have tried to make an educated guess as to the number series and builder...
